In addition, with the comparison Still-life 100ISO shot, the D7100 resolves finer pairs of lines on the "proportional scale" thing to the right of the image than the D600 does.
I suspect these shots are done at factory default. If that's the case, it makes it more interesting, because my opinion is you can boost the in-camera setting of the D7100 from '3' to '5' without ANY degradation of the image (maybe more).
This COULD increase the sense of "coarser" noise at high ISO though, with the D7100...
Regardless, this newest Nikon has tremendous resolution capability.

I agree that the D7100 resolution appears to be slightly better than the D600 at ISO 100, and at least on my tiny Dell netbook screen, even at ISO 1600, I see very little noise or difference. Very impressive. It makes you wonder how a D600 without the AA filter would perform.

If you look carefully at the D600 still life at ISO 3200 or above compared to the same shot from the D7100, however, the D600 is slightly sharper and you can see some noise in the D7100 shot when there appears to be little or none from the D600. That being said, I think I'm going to be happy I chose the D7100 over the D600 because other features of the D7100 will have more impact for me personally.
